Hello, LibrePlanet.  Hello, FSF Campaign Managers (Zak and Libby).

The French Free Software Association (April) has produced some really
wonderful pamphlets for the purpose of informing non-technical users
about software freedom.

I propose that we (U.S. American software activists) translate these
documents and distribute them in the usual places (campuses, cities,

The source for each document is available on April's wiki.  The text
and images are licensed CC and/or GFDL.

At least one of the pamphlets already exists in English, but I think
we can improve it for local use by using more idiomatic language. [1]

Would someone help me produce a list of technical goals?  Here is a
very rough draft:

* Get source into a repository (gitorious?  April, do you have this
source in an existing repo?)
* Find volunteer translators
* Build (render) pamphlets into a format suitable for printing
* Find print shop(s)
* Find money
* Get pamphlets printed
* Find volunteers to distribute them
* ???

Thank you for reading my email.  Happy hacking,


1. Dear April: There is a bug in
...In the lower left corner, "Format Closed" should say "Open Format".
This bug is not present in
so maybe you only need to regenerate the PDF from source.  And, please
consider DjVu. ;)
